The advantage of TMR feed mixers

May 12, 2023

1, Direct feeding without mixing round bundle of forage grass, feed for livestock, abandoned and trampled behavior, make its loss rate is as high as 30%, and the vertical TMR with other fill material mixing after feeding, feed losses fell sharply.

2. Feed livestock with vertical TMR stirring according to nutrient diet formula taken in different production stages to achieve cost saving and good nutrient intake effect. For example, beef cattle have lower nutritional requirements after weaning and during the second trimester, but higher nutritional requirements during late gestation, calving, early lactation, and childbirth, while reserve heifers and growing young calves have higher nutritional requirements.

In addition, the quality and nutrient composition of herbage are different due to different kinds and varieties, the ripening stage, straw length and climate influence at the time of harvesting. By analyzing herbage and mastering the changes of cattle production stage and nutritional requirements, using TMR feed mixer is the most economical and sufficient way to mix herbage and feed, so that cattle can accurately ingest nutritional requirements and thus reduce costs. In beef cattle, for example, conventional feeding has reduced hay use by 30% to 50% compared to vertical TMR stirring feeding. Experience shows that using vertical TMR can save 20%-30% of the annual feed cost of optimized forage.
